Kiyoshi Hashimoto and Kenta Yamazaki | y/n “Coming Out Lessons” Work-in-progress showing + Q&A


A lecture performance on “Coming Out Lessons” by y/n, a group formed by director/actor Kiyoshi Hashimoto and critic/dramaturg Kenta Yamazaki, which aims to become a repertoire project in the future. This piece, whose subject matter dwells on the coming out process for sexual minorities, will be taking into account feedback from this work-in-progress showing and incorporating it into later performances. The group is scheduled to perform in Kyoto after their residency stay period ends.

Is it possible to confess the truth on the stage? Homosexuality or heterosexuality, fiction or reality, lessons or performance, trust or suspicion. This is a lecture performance as lesson to choose the “right” answer when you face various choices. Or rather, to counter them.
